BUZZ Off means I won’t buy it or recommend it to anyone.  Positive BUZZ is for those items I like but didn’t love enough to put on my purchase list.  A BEE Shopping rating is for those products I plan to purchase and I recommend to you as well.

What I’ve Sampled Lately:

This serum was nice but there wasn’t enough in it This product gets a positive Buzz rating from AngelaBeeto give me a good idea of whether or not I would purchase a full size so I’m only giving it a Positive Buzz.

http://www.someessentials.com Deoderant containing Tea Tree, Lavender, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Clay, Arrowroot and Essential Oils

I had a Twitter chat with the owner of Some Essentials, who is super nice by the way, to get some advice on why this deoderant wasn’t working to control odour for me.  Apparently the more chemicals you have in your body the longer it takes for your body to get used to a natural and detoxifying deoderant like this one.  I must have a bunch of chemicals because I could apply this and then smell my armpits two hours later (sorry TMI).  In our discussion we estimate it could take 2 months of consistent use for this to work.  There’s only 5-7 days worth of product in this sample and I don’t know that I’m willing to smell bad for 2+ months to go natural.  What would you do?  On a good note this deoderant smells amazing and is easy to apply just by rubbing a dime sized amount into your armpits.  I’ve decided not to rate this product based on my experience with odour.  If you are looking for a natural alternative you should visit www.someessentials.com and request a free sample for yourself.  In Canada you will need to pay for shipping, but in the US shipping of the samples is free.  Also follow Some Essentials on Twitter.

Loved this foundation again!  I like how it applies with both This product gets a BEE Shopping recommendation from AngelaBeebrush, fingers, or sponge and it looks good all day long.  This is already on my beauty wish list.

Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner Full and Plush for fuller, thicker hair

This shampoo and conditioner combo was OK.  I got three uses out of these samples.  I don’t think This product gets a positive Buzz rating from AngelaBeeI would purchase full sizes because it make my scalp psoriasis itchy.  I didn’t notice that my hair was any thicker, but maybe you need to use these longer to get results.  I still give them a Positive Buzz for those without scalp issues because it does clean and condition hair well.

I’ve used up 24 out of 32 samples for March Mini Madness so far!!
